    Hey guys, first time stopping in, wanted to share an idea I have that I think would be really good.

    While building boats, I noticed I was spending a lot of time welding the props together, and sometimes it was difficult to find some buried props and I would end up with an ultimately unfinished design.

    After a bit of thinking, I considered the possibility of a system where the game detects nearby props and automatically welds them together if they are frozen near each other. This simple concept would make building much less of a hassle and would save a ton of time.

    TL: DR - system where the game detects nearby props and automatically welds them together if they are frozen near each other (automatic proximity welding)

    Please like or emote or whatever if you agree and think this should be added!

    I believe this would be a great idea that would be beneficial for everyone.

    Building on top of your idea, I think it would also be nice to perhaps consider building upon our Smart Weld tool. I think some smart weld tools out on the workshop already allows you to automatically select props within a certain range using SHIFT + Left Click (to select) and SHIFT + Right Click. Maybe that would help expand our tool functionality and reduce the amount of potential issues that may be present if the idea was built standalone.

    Theoretical scenarios that I can possibly envisage:
    • 3 seconds are left within the phase and a player hastily tries to fit in as many props to their boat and one (or more) of the props (lets assume a heavy metal) freezes into midair
    • Player moves his boat next to a teammate's and to what was originally 2 separate boats, the system automatically welds them together
